Track Name: Try Try Try
Try Try Try

Don’t go sayin’ that you got no time
You wanna go steady then you change your mind
Heaven only knows it’s the games you play
Baby believe me don’t know what to say
And I try and I try
And I try and I try
To share my love with you

You wanna be together then you wanna be free
You got no business holdin’ onto me
Heaven only knows why you make me blue
Baby believe me don’t know what to do
And I try and I try
And I try and I try
To share your point of view

Don’t go thinkin’ you got nothin’ to lose
Baby you’re the winner you got me to choose
Heaven only knows what’s around the bend
Baby believe me I don’t understand
Why I try and I try
And I try and I try
To share my love with you

Track Name: Angel of Mine
Angel of Mine

Show me the way to kneel down and pray
Show me the way to heaven’s door
Just like before ‘angel of mine’
Just like before ‘angel of mine’

Tell me your name, let the light shine
Show me the way into your heart
Never apart ‘angel of mine’
Right from the start ‘angel of mine’

We’re travellin’ on a wing and a prayer
Lookin’ at the world spin around us
We’re travellin’ on a wing and a prayer
Climb every step to the top of the stairs

Show me the way to kneel down and pray
Show me the way to carry on
Warm as the sun ‘angel of mine’
We’ve just begun ‘angel of mine’

Track Name: Table For One
Table For One

Sometimes when I go walkin’ in the rain
I’ll think about the blue skies
And the sunny days of Spain
But until then, I’ll have to depend on my
Table for one

Somewhere on the other side of the world
I’ll think about the big smile
On the funny face of my girl
But until then, I’ll have to depend on my
Table for one

It’s a new day at the café
Just me and my little red rose
A table for one, it’s no fun
When she’s comin’ home nobody knows

Sometimes when I go wishin’ on a star
I’ll think about the good times
That we’ve travelled with so far
But until then, I’ll have to depend on my
Table for one

Track Name: At the Palais Royale
At the Palais Royale

Put your hat on and I’ll pick you up at seven
Catch the train by eight
Toe tappin’ with the band at eleven
Don’t wanna be late

It’s the toe tappin’ finger snappin’
It’s a’whats a’happenin’ time at the ‘Palais Royale’

Take your shoes off and a’meet me on the dance floor
Jumpin’ in is the thing
Bert Niosi’s just a’comin’ through the front door
He’s the king of swing

You say you do, I say you don’t
You say you will, I say you won’t
Just a’shuffle on by and meet me at the railway station

Lift your arms up as you’re reachin’ up to heaven
Look at the stars of the night
Finger snappin’ with the band at eleven
Oh it feels so right

Track Name: Wild Is the Wind
Wild Is the Wind

The wind is a’cuttin’ through your bones, it comes to take its toll
Whenever you hear those distant moans, reach inside your soul
Nobody knows when the cold wind blows, wipe away your tears
Nobody knows when the cold wind blows to satisfy your fears

Wild is the wind from some distant shore
Wild is the howlin’ wind callin’ out for more
Wild is the wind from the day you were born
Wild is the child in you, the calm before the storm

The wind is a’crashin’ on the seas, better get outta the way
You know it can knock you to your knees
Better get down and pray
Look it around to see what you lost, that’s the way it’s gone
Gotta get back no matter the cost, that’s how the battle’s won

The wind is a’howlin’ in your head, a’rustlin’ through your hair
Must do what you can before you tread
You gotta come up for air
The wind can throw you off your tack, that’s the way it goes
Sometimes the wind is at your back, that’s the way she blows

Track Name: On the Riverboat Queen
On the Riverboat Queen

You gotta take a trip on the Riverboat Queen
Down the Mississippi down to New Orleans
You get your mojo workin’ from town to town
You can’t see for lookin’ when the sun go down
A lot of take and givin’, tryin’ ta make a livin’
On the Riverboat Queen

You gotta take a trip to the Delta Blues
A little boogie woogie and a bit of soft shoe
We got Muddy Waters and B.B. King
A Cajun band with a Dixieland swing
A lot of take and givin’, tryin’ ta make a livin’
On the Riverboat Queen

‘Meet me down at the Crossroads’
The Devil says to Mister Jones
‘Meet me down at the Crossroads
Guaranteed to chill your bones’
A lot of take and givin’
Ya gotta keep from sinnin’ on the Delta Blues

You gotta take a trip on the Riverboat Queen
Down the Mississippi down to New Orleans
We got James Cotton and the Howlin’ Wolf
You can’t see for lookin’ when the sun go south
A lot of take and givin’, tryin’ ta make a livin’
On the Riverboat Queen

Track Name: All Night Long
All Night Long

I wanna talk talk talk until the broad daylight
I wanna walk walk walk feels so right
I wanna go back home and take your love with me
And hold you in my arms ‘all night long’

I wanna fly fly fly until I find the shore
I wanna cry cry cry ‘til I cry no more
I wanna go on home and take your love with me
And dim out the lights so we can barely see ..yeah

I wanna rock a bye until I feel your touch
I wanna roll on down I want you so much
I wanna go back home and take your love with me
And hold you in my arms for eternity

I wanna knock knock knock upon your heavy door
I wanna talk talk talk ‘til we talk no more
I wanna go on home and take your love with me
And hold you in my arms ‘all night long’

Track Name: Sunny Day Blues
Sunny Day Blues

Pretty baby won’t you be so kind
Won’t you be my little Valentine
Got your letter in the mail last week
Heard the birdies go tweet tweet tweet
Cupid’s arrow in my heart
Be it come what may
How in the world can we be apart
On such a sunny day

Pretty baby won’t you be so good
Take me all the way to Hollywood
Drivin’ around in your Cadillac car
Keep on reachin’ for your star
There sure is something in the air
Be it come what may
Like Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire
Dancin’ on a sunny day

Track Name: Walkin' with the Lord
Walkin' with the Lord

I’m walkin’, walkin’ on the water
walkin’, walkin’ on the water
I’m talkin’, talkin’ with my father
walkin’, walk a little farther
I’m comin’ on home when I’m walkin’ with the Lord

I’m workin’, workin’ a little harder
workin’, workin’ a little harder
To puttin’, puttin’ out the fire
I’m workin’, I will never tire
I’m comin’ on home when I’m walkin’ with the Lord

If you ever pass me by and you happen to hear me cry, oh Lord
If I’m reachin’ out to you and I don’t know what to do, oh Lord
It’s better safe than sorry, help me find your glory and save me

I’m lookin’, lookin’ to where the sun shines
lookin’, lookin’ to where the sun shines
I’m hookin’, hookin’ up a phone line
lookin’, lookin’ to when it’s my time
I’m comin’ on home when I’m talkin’ to the Lord

Track Name: Waltz of the Blues
Waltz of the Blues

I remember the sound of your laughter
Back in the days of our youth
How we promised the here ‘n’ ever after
Searching for all but the truth
Oh how we broke all the rules out on the ship of fools
We would dance to the ‘Waltz of the Blues’

I remember the sound of our footsteps
As we crossed through the sands of time
How we whispered our love for each other
Beyond all reason or rhyme
Now that you’re gone I must choose to carry on win or lose
Let us dance to the ‘Waltz of the Blues’

Oh darling is it you there beside me now as my days grow old
In my heart I know you can guide me all the way in from the cold
Now that we’ve paid all our dues
Let’s put on these dancing shoes
So we can dance to the ‘Waltz of the Blues’
Let us dance to the ‘Waltz of the Blues’
